FAQ

  • Can I use Slug and Snail Killer in my vegetable plot? +
    Yes. Slug & Snail Killer may be used around all plants in the garden, including edibles. Crops may be harvested from areas which have just been treated with the pellets. The only care that should be taken is to avoid accidentally lodging pellets in the leaves of crops e.g. lettuce.
  • Can Provado Vine Weevil Killer 2 be sprayed on plants? +

    Gardeners often ask if they can spray Provado Vine Weevil Killer 2 onto their plants rather than watering it into the compost, especially if foliar pests plague them. We have ensured that if accidentally splashed onto leaves or flowers, the product will do no harm. However, the product registration is only for use as a soil application so you cannot spray this product onto plants. We have a fantastic systemic spray though that will help you tackle your common garden bugs - try Provado Ultimate Bug Killer Ready to Use!

  • How do I remove really persistent weeds from my lawn? +

    Persistent weeds must be removed before they take over completely, or build up a large bank of seeds in the soil for future years. Regular hand weeding or spot treatment with Lawn Weedkiller Ready to Use 2 will kill problem weeds before they can spread. This can be used twice a year so we recommend you use it in the spring and again in the summer if necessary.
